Bro. Stephen (aka Stephen Scott Kirkpatrick) is another in the world's long list of unsettled souls. From his sheltered religious upbringing in rural Michigan, to his escape and early adulthood a period of great personal discovery in Louisville, KY, to his current state of constant world traveller, Bro. Stephen has always relied on his songs as an outlet, a means for relating to the strangers he encounters, and a cathartic experience when there's no one else to talk to. All of this is meticulously evidenced in each and every song as they are simultaneously spartan and eerie, hopeful and beautiful, and catchy and memorable. Every song that Bro. Stephen writes is a testament to his wandering existence, his mercurial past, and his outstretched hand to the people around him.
COUNT THIS PENNY

In late 2009, Count This Penny's Allen and Amanda Rigell cancelled their cable, wrote three songs, and played at an open mic inside the wide-hewn walls of the Down Home in Johnson City, TN.
Within three years, they relocated to Madison, WI, released an EP, and recorded a full length at Madison's legendary Smart Studios just before the doors there closed for good. After their national radio debut on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, their EP took the #6 spot on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart.
This year, amidst sold-out hometown and regional shows, they're writing new songs that ring out shinier -- and sharper around the edges -- delivering on the promise of their first steps onto the stage.
